Offer NAT as a Service
There is often the need to connect two or more networks with overlapping addresses over a VPN in regulated industries. The address spaces (often 10.0.0.0/8) can't be changed, however a DMZ subnet can be introduced in each network from the 172.16.0.0/12 address space. The DMZ subnets will not overlap between any network.
Just like the load balancer, make a NAT device a first class function citizen in virtual networking and allow us to define SNAT, DNAT or Full NAT. Feel free to require a dedicated subnet for the device.
Then make it easier for custom route rules to route traffic through this device.
This can be done today using Linux and iptables, but its cumbersome to maintain and patch.
Apologies. There was apparently a misunderstanding and the status has been corrected.
This specific feedback item is for NAT from private IP space to private IP address
A private to private NAT service would be extremely helpful for VPN connected SaaS customers.

@Yuri this is for private-public, not private-private afaik. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cli/azure/network/nat/gateway?view=azure-cli-latest

+1 would simplify things greatly for Enterprise organizations that want to give dev teams their own spaces.

Any Updates for this.
Can we imgaine carrier grade /16 subnets NAT
Any update on this?

This is exactly what we would need today. The client requires our side to be NAT'ed and not come through an internal IP across the VPN tunnel.
It looks like we're going to have to use a linux appliance to accomplish this which is high complexity and overhead for a company that doesn't have an infrastructure team.
